Value Plastics, a Nordson Company, Introduces a More User-Friendly, Single-Use Sanitary Clamp to Biopharmaceutical Market

Value Plastics, a Nordson Company (Nasdaq: NDSN), announces the PharmaLok™ Series – a new line of ergonomic, single-use sanitary clamps for securing fittings to bag ports and filters in the biopharmaceutical market. The new PharmaLok clamps will be featured in Booth 2722 at Interphex 2012 in New York City, May 1–May 3.

PharmaLok clamps provide a significant advancement for the industry, as a number of existing solutions either require tools for closure or consist of multiple components, which turns what should be a simple operation into a difficult and awkward process.

Value Plastics, a Nordson Company, Signs New Distributor for Australia and New Zealand

Value Plastics, a Nordson Company (Nasdaq: NDSN), announces that they have signed a new distributor, John Morris Scientific Pty Ltd (JMS), to strengthen their presence in Australia and New Zealand.

Value Plastics manufactures innovative, high-quality fluid fittings and other fluid management components used with the flexible tubing employed in many healthcare, biopharmaceutical, and industrial applications.

Value Plastics introduces a technologically advanced series of ports for the single-use bags used to transfer media and drug compounds in the biopharmaceutical industry.

Value Plastics’ new high tech series of bag ports offers a variety of benefits new to the biopharmaceutical industry through a combination of Value Pharma™ resin and a unique design. Value Pharma™ resin holds credentials that many manufacturers deem fundamental, such as animal derivative free qualification, USP Class VI certification, and the guarantee of heat sealing and conformance with polyethylene bags. The resin then goes even further to provide a strong, 24-hour resistance to alcohol stress cracking.

Their unique design sets these new ports apart from existing solutions. They not only conform with frequently utilized tubing sizes from 1/8" (3.2 mm) to 1" (25.4 mm), but they are also designed to ASME and BPE ferrule specifications, allowing them to work with leading industry fittings, filters and other devices. However, the most notable of the bag ports’ specifications are those that are new to the industry – the parabolic lead and the alignment ribs. These two features, respectively, reduce the amount of time it takes to drain a bag by 24 percent and improve flow dynamics through the port.

Value Plastics Expands Press-In Plug Line

Value Plastics, manufacturer of plastic tubing connectors, announces the expansion of their press-in plug (PIP) line. PIPs are frequently used by biopharmaceutical and medical device companies to seal off tubing during the sterilization process. Due to increasing production volumes, companies have trended towards using larger tubing and as a result, the biopharm industry has expressed a need for larger PIP sizes - particularly 3/8" and 1/2" fittings. Value Plastics is accommodating this need and providing these parts in the industry's preferred resin, USP Class VI animal-free polypropylene.

Value Plastics Makes Animal-Free Polypropylene a Standard USP Class VI Offering

Due to increased customer demand and a change in supplier certifications, Value Plastics, manufacturer of plastic tube fittings, has chosen to include a certified USP Class VI polypropylene as one of their core resin offerings. Any part that is currently offered in the company's standard polypropylene (parts ending in '-6') will now also be offered in the Flinthills P5M6K-080 resin (-6005) that provides the USP Class VI and animal-free certification desired by medical and biopharm companies. This change has resulted in a significant increase in Value Plastics' total product offering.

Value Plastics Expands Animal-Free Polypropylene Line

In response to customer demand, Value Plastics has increased their USP Class VI certified, animal-free polypropylene offering tenfold since its first introduction in 2006. In the past 12 months alone, the company has almost doubled the size of this line, and customers can expect more to come.

Value Plastics Provides Updates on ISO 80369

Value Plastics, manufacturer of plastic tube fittings, is one of only a few connector companies worldwide actively participating on ISO 80369 committees. To provide an information source in one web location, they have decided to provide information to keep the medical device community apprised of new developments.

While connectors may have once been one of the most overlooked components of a medical device, the number of patient injuries associated with medical tubing misconnections has caught the attention of the International Standards Organization (ISO). In conjunction with a number of other driving forces (AAMI, FDA, EN, JCAHO, WHO and even states such as California), ISO has deemed it necessary to develop standards intended to reduce future tubing misconnections in healthcare/hospital environments.

Value Plastics Takes Unique Approach to Two-Shot Molding

Leading the market in plastic tubing connectors, Value Plastics, A Nordson Company is expanding their product line of over 4,000 parts to include two-shot molded fittings. While companies traditionally employ this technology to create one specific product, Value Plastics has taken a more proactive, forward-looking approach that will allow their diverse client-base to benefit from a variety of unique product solutions.

With this technology, customers will benefit from features such as integral seals and flow control mechanisms, enhanced grips and ergonomics, movable segments, and an integration of various colors, materials, and components. Couple these features with reduced cycle times and assembly costs, and Value Plastics has created a great value-add for their customers.
